Ferrari and Lamborghini make supercars with all-wheel drive, but you wouldn't take one off-road, right? Of course not. And by the time token, you wouldn't take a Ducati off-road either, would you?

Well, the guys at Portland-based Ducati dealer MotoCorsa would beg to differ. They were heading out to ride some remote countryside in Southeastern Oregon, but instead of taking their Multistrada, which Ducati designed to handle mixed road surfaces, they looked at their new 1199 Panigale S and thought, 'Why not?' So they fitted a set of knobby Continental TKC80 off-road tires on a fresh set of rims, coaxed some extra travel and ground clearance out of the suspension, swapped out the exhaust and painted the whole thing matte green.

They called the result the TerraCorsa, and report that it handled the moderate off-roading with aplomb. See for yourself in the video below, and check out Ride Apart for more.

      Ducati makes an off-road street bike already. It's called the multistrada and I have one sitting in my garage.

      Wow....I regret the lost time watching the video, I can only imagine the deep regrets of the poor dumb guy that wasted his time building that POS.

      I am taking my ninja this December to México, if I can find some off road tires I already know what I will be doing while over there.

      Not very off-roady at all. And that "track" wasn't very off-roady either. It was all smooth and nice. It's like fitting knobbly tires to a Lamborghini and driving it through a gravel road and calling that off-roading.

      That trail he's on, is it legal to ride motorized vehicles? I mountain bike. If this guy illegally on it and crashes into me, I'd be seriously pissed off!
